    It’s the just current state of 32X emulation & SEGA’s design with the system itself in the first place I’m afraid, it’s been like this for a long time.

    It would depend on what it presents itself to the operating system as, but I’ve had it working on both an official and un-official Xbox 360 Wireless USB receiver.

    Yes, assuming you’re on Raspbian – try:

      sudo raspi-config
      Select option 8 Advanced Options
      Select A1 – Overscan
      Select Enable (or Disable)
      Reboot

    Or run:

      sudo nano /boot/config.txt
      Look for or add “disable_overscan=” and set it to 0 or 1
      Save & reboot

    Lots more overscan options in there as well as required.

    I’ve had this before – use a different HDMI cable.

    My extension is 1.3a spec rated (printed) and my HDMI cable didn’t specify anything (an old one). The signal would cut out at random to my monitor and refused to be seen via my HDMI over Ethernet extender to the TV.
    I swapped it for a 1.5 metre 1.3 spec rated cable from Amazon and I have no issues now.
    In short, I would make sure that the generations of HDMI cable you are using all match – no need to spend ££’s on cables though.

    Linux is case sEnSIive, so check all your file names are absolutely correct.

    How did you edit your theme.xml file? It’s expecting UNIX UTF-8 format so if it’s not been edited with a UNIX aware text editor (e.g. you’ve used notepad on Windows), then it will have likely been saved as DOS format which contains different line ending characters.
    If you’re on Windows, check your file in Notepad++: http://notepad-plus-plus.org/

    Difficult to make a proper corresponding .CUE from just a .BIN.
    .CUE’s should look like the following for example:

    FILE "Crash Bandicoot 3 - Warped (SCES-01420).bin" BINARY
      TRACK 01 MODE2/2352
        INDEX 01 00:00:00
      REM LEAD-OUT 32:34:12

    which instruct the software as to the layout of the disc image, number of tracks, where the tracks live, how long they are, how to read it.

    By default I don’t believe it changes the one at: /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg because the following line exists:config_save_on_exit = "false" but that’s the main one for it and child ones are loaded from /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/nameofsystem/RetroArch.cfg

    Mine works ok: [url=http://sdrv.ms/1eVyklP]n64 Theme[/url]

    In: /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

    DESCNAME=Nintendo 64
    NAME=n64
    PATH=/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/n64
    EXTENSION=.z64 .Z64 .n64 .N64
    COMMAND=cd /home/pi/RetroPie/emulators/mupen64plus-rpi/test/ && ./mupen64plus %ROM%
    PLATFORMID=3

    Theme lives at: /home/pi/.emulationstation/n64/theme.xml

    Yes, it works when not launched via emulationstation as stated in original post.

    All my .img and .bin / multi-.bins have a corresponding .cue file in the roms/psx folder then I’ve changed the PSX EXTENSION line in /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg:

    DESCNAME=Sony Playstation 1
    NAME=psx
    PATH=/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/psx
    #EXTENSION=.img .IMG .7z .7Z .pbp .PBP .bin .BIN
    EXTENSION=.cue .CUE

    It’s better to dump them in a multitrack .img though with a .cue from the PSX CD rather than a multi-.bin as some games may not work correctly in the emulator.

    No need, load the .cue.
    Multiple bins are for multiple tracks e.g. audio.

    Within:
    /home/pi/RetroPie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg

    Add or change line to:
    video_font_size = "20.000000"

    20-24 for 1080p is about right in my opinion.

    Resolved it, don’t delete ‘prboom.wad’ out of ‘~/RetroPie/roms/doom’ as RetroArch looks to this path for it despite it being here: ‘~/RetroPie/emulatorcores/libretro-prboom/prboom.wad’

    This means however you’ll get a rom list like this in emulationstation:
    DOOM.WAD
    doom2.WAD
    TNT.WAD
    PLUTON.WAD
    prboom.wad

    Are you using the _netdev mount option?

    I’m using SAMBA/CIFS here but I get similar behaviour without it.

    PS3 Dual Shock 3 controller + Sitecom Bluetooth adapter (Genuine CSR chipset), patched sixad (). Best performance and functionality so far – works fine two rooms away in the living room and using a HDMI over CAT5E to get to the TV.

    Might entertain a MasterSystem + SEGA USB adapter at some point.

    Was using the Xbox 360 Wireless pad + adapter + xboxdrv but I found it causes performance to suffer in RetroArch.

    I’m having the same issue, even with legitimate WAD’s.
